Heavy glitching with Noire on tempo changes in REAPER

I'm working on a solo piano project with Noire library in the main role. Unfortunately, I'm experiencing audio glitches that seem to occur on any type of tempo change event. It is particularly strong on ramps (gradual transition between the two tempo markers). I never had such a problem with any of my other software from Native Instruments nor with the 3rd party ones. I've read some comments that the internal Replika effect could be a culprit, but disabling doesn't seem to help...

BTW, I'm using the latest version of REAPER 6 and Kontakt 6. The track template with Noire uses a 64-bit version of the VST2 plugin. I've tried using the VST3 version instead, but it doesn't seem to help either...

Any ideas on this? Thanks!

    This is because of Replika delay effect. I think it's actually worse if that effect is bypassed. Counterintuitive, but that's how it is. It's a known issue.

    Thanks! I'll hope this will get fixed eventually. In the meantime, I'll try to substitute Noire with some of my other piano libraries, at least on pieces that feature tempo changes.

    If you have Kontakt Full, if you don't need the Replika Delay you can also just go to edit mode and delete it from Send Effects. I made only a quick test but I did not see a really negative impact. Of course then don't save the instrument...

    @ThomasM74, thanks for your reply and suggestion. Yes, I'm working with a full version of Kontakt; have tried to disable Replika in sends but it doesn't seem to help. I'll try saving a custom nki with the effect removed and test this with a track template made from scratch.

    This won't help because the script will re-insert the effect back on engine reset (i.e. project reload).
